    has anyone ever just milled off the dually studs and extentions then run longer studs back through where extentions mount and use those for whe wheel studs? does that make sense? what has everyone else done OTHER that spend $375 for the new hubs?
    thanx

    Sell the dually hubs to people who want to run hummer beadlocks without recentering them. Then use the cash to help purchase SRW hubs.

    u can do what u are talking about the problem is the drw hub does not have a solid ring around it where it bolts to the caliper, & there is some debate over the strength

    yes you can. i had mine machined and added a wheel mounting surface ring. i had wagoner machine do it, but it will cost ya altest $350 for the pair.

    but do a seach for "cheap hubs" or "gm parts direct" on this board. there was a fella how found a part # and used it on gmpartsdirct.com and got SRW D60 hubs with rotors for $115 each:eek:

    I received my SRW D60 hubs the other day from GM Parts Direct. $275.00 for the pair with shipping. Sweet pieces. New hubs, rotors, wheel studs and Timken bearing races in one easy serving (rotors even have the balance weights in the cooling vanes like the o.e. ones did). The hubs look like Dodge units with the Budd name cast into the outer diameter of the "snout" area. The only thing I didn't like about them was the finish on the rotors. They had a very coarse directional finish (lathe cut as opposed to surface ground). it looked like a real fast cut was done on them. I saw that and sent them over to our machine department for a better cut and they came back just bootieful :thumb:.

    I priced out individual pieces and at my cost rotors were, for North American iron, $90.00 each, hubs were $175.00 each and studs were $2.00 each. All totalled, I was looking at $562.00 + tax to buy the bits and pieces and assemble them myself. No thanks...... Point, click, done--ahhhh, much better.

    Just an FYI, but the GMPD price may not be what it seems.

    GMPD thread.

    You could trade them to somebody who wants to switch their crew cab to a dually!!! Like say me for instance. However I won't be ready to do this for some time so probably not much help...
